Jamile A. Balli

Program Coordinator

Jamile Balli was born in Brownsville, TX and raised in Merced, CA.  She’s spent (almost) ten years at Chico State working as an admissions counselor and recruiter.  She has a Master’s degree in English and is passionate about travel, film, and helping students find success in higher education.  She was a first-generation, low-income college student herself, so she wants to help students like her maximize their potential and feel at home while they’re at Chico State.  Her two big life inspirations are her mother and Michelle Obama and feels that if she could be a little bit like both of them she’d be doing pretty great.
